Yes.

The -proposed pocket is there for testing release candidates to make sure (a) they fix the problem and (2) they do not introduce new problems. Once a few valiant testers verify those conditions hold, the package(s) is (are) moved into the general release archives and the bug marked 'Fix Released'.

So, assuming someone else is testing and verifying the package, you could just wait. The downside to that is nobody else may be interested in verifying the bug is fixed by the release candidate.
